The Theatre Studies Performance Showcases is a new series that focuses on the creative labor and rigorous training experience of the BA Theatre Studies students. The fall showcase, R&J: For Love or Money is inspired by students' study of Fitzmaurice Voicework. Students share scenes and monologues from Romeo and Juliet sewn together by narrations that challenge us to set aside what we think we know about one of Shakespeare's most beloved plays. Is this simply the story of a pair of ill fated, star crossed lovers, or is Shakespeare also making a broader commentary about the harm caused in our society by money, greed, and the cultural practices used to consolidate wealth and social standing. Come see the lovers and narrators fight it out at the Harold Dixon Directing Studio, Drama Bldg., Rm 116 on the University of Arizona campus.
